GDelheim Harvest Celebration LR 8et a good dose of Winelands entertainment at Delheim Estate, one of the first wine estates to roll out the barrels for their popular Start of Harvest Celebration, which takes place on the weekend of 31 January and 1 February 2015.

Proving that there is life after the holidays, the Sperling family invites the public to share with them ‘Days in the life of Delheim’ as they stomp in the harvest in high spirits. The fun in the sun starts at noon, both days, when guests are welcomed with a glass of fermenting grape must and a sweet ‘mosbolletjie’, a traditional harvest treat, to toast the new vintage. Grapes harvested on the day will also be out for sampling, whilst young and old can get knee-deep in grape juice glee to get a real hands-on experience of winemaking.

A long, buffet-style Harvest Table will entice families and friends in the lush picnic area where they can chill out on the grass at the river’s edge and enjoy delicious food to the sounds of a live band.
